PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo
on Friday evening vowed that
the country's security forces
will receive all the resources
they need to lead the fight
against criminal elements.
Mr. Jagdeo was addressing
the gathering at the 50th anni-'
versary celebrations of Banks
DIH at Thirst Park.
Speaking about the security
situation in Gu\ ana, he said
that the concerns of private citi-
zens and businesses are under-

The President pointed out

that the challenges faced by the
Police Force and Army are more
intense than in the past, since
the society is finding it difficult
to absorb the 700 deportees
sent to the country every year.
He added that the 3000
Snemibers of the Police Force are
trying to meet the challenges
with Government's help in the
form of sophisticated training
programmes among other things.
"Our Police and Army are un-
dergoing major training
programmes to equip them to
better discharge their responsi-
bilities", he said.
He continued, "We are ex-

ing capabilities of the Police and

as the rapid introduction of the
CCTV system."
The President said the fact
that the country's crime situa-
tion is not as severe as that of
other countries is of little com-
fort to the victims of brutal and
callous violence.
"Although the battle
against crime is never easy, I
am confident that if we stay
the course, the forces of de-
cency, law and order will pre-
vail over the forces of chaos
and destruction", he said.

Moraikobai celebrates Heritage

Day in gala atmosphere

By Chamanlall Naipaul ? '-'. -

The Amerindian village of
Moraikobai, inhabited
mainly by Arawaks and se-
lected as this year's
Amerindian Heritage Village,
was yesterday transformed
into a gala atmosphere as
Amerindians from across
:Guyana, as well as many
coastlanders, gathered to par-
ticipate in the celebrations
which have become an annual
feature since the government
declared September as
"Amerindian Heritage Month
in 1995. The theme for the
month is: Overseeing Chal-
lenges as We Progress."
A wide variety of tradi-
tional Amerindian dishes-
pepperpot, cassava bread,
among others, and beverages-
paiwari and casserri, and craft
made from tibisiri and nibbi
were also on display.
The occasion which was at-
tended by President Bharrat
Jagdeo, Minister of Amerindian
Affairs, Ms. Carolyn Rodrigues
and other Cabinet Ministers and
government officials, was
marked by a colourful cultural
programme which depicted tra-
ditional Amerindian music and
dance reflecting the rich indig-
enous culture of the first inhab-
itants of Guyana.
Toshao of the village, Colin
Andrews, in his message to the
large gathering, alluded to the
hard work and togetherness
which exist in the community,
pointing out that this has been
responsible for improvements in
the living conditions of its
"Our foreparents taught to-
getherness and to focus on
progress. Goals are set and we
have to achieve them.
Moraikobai does not like to fail
to achieve those goals,"
Andrews stressed.
He offered that the village
could be a shining example to
other Amerindian communities
as well as to those on the

In addition, he reported
that the village boasts a new
primary school, health centre
and Village Council Office, and
more recently a new benaboo,

Arawak style, in preparation
for Amerindian Heritage Month
"Moraikobai brings a mes-


sage of peace and love not only
to Amerindians but to all
Guyanese," Andrews declared.
President Bharrat Jagdeo, in
his remarks, stressed that the
government had decided to have
a month set aside to observe
Amerindian Heritage in an effort
to rejuvenate the indigenous cul-
ture which was on the decline.
If any culture is allowed to
die, the President observed,
harm is not done only to the
group to which the culture be-
longs but to the entire country.

He pointed also that the

P J PATTERSON, in one of
his most stirring charges to
delegates of his ruling
People's National Party
(PNP), Friday warned them
about the dangers of accept-
ing money to vote in the up-
coming race to elect his suc-
"The delegates of this great
People's National Party must
take the decision that we are not
for sale," Patterson said to tu-
multuous applause at the open-
ing of the party's 67th annual
conference at Kingston's Na-
tional Arena.
"The danger in that is that
if you allow yourself to go one
way because money reach you,
the time will come when the Ja-
maica Labour Party will reach
you because of more money."
Patterson said.
Patterson, who has been
serving as prime minister since
1992, said the race for his suc-
cessor must be a race which
unifies the party and strengthen
its organisation for the better-
ment of Jamaica.
Three vice-presidents Karl
Blythe, Portia Simpson Miller
and Peter Phillips along with
party chairman Robert
Pickersgill and the finance min-
ister, Omar Davies have been
involved in intense campaign for
the PNP's top job.
Addressing the leadership
aspirants directly, Patterson
said: "Promote yourselves, but
do not tear down anybody run-
ning against you. And anybody
who says anything to attack the
party while I still hold this of-
fice, I am going to hold you ac-
The new leadership of the
PNP, Patterson said, should
pledge itself to bring in a higher
quality of members to the party,
but said "everyone from every
walk of life was welcomed to be
a member of the great PNP".

year-old Patterson has, how-
ever, turned nasty, with reports
of threats being made against

The party has set up an in-
ternal committee to monitor the

negate action by the party,
Whiteman said the committee
would have preferred written re-
Whiteman said irrespective
of the level of the individuals
making the threats, the aspirants
themselves were responsible for
the action of their members.
Patterson, who has led the
party since 1992, is attending
this weekend's party annual
conference as president for the
last time, having made it clear
that he would not be leading the
PNP in another election. But he
told delegates that his giving up
the leadership did not mean giv-
ing up politics.
"I am sure I told you my full
name sometime before. But let me
tell you again. It is Percival Norman
Noel James Patterson, PNP from
birth. I will be right there on the
conference floor as a delegate."
Patterson said after his re-
tirement he will not be going
anywhere to lecture, taking a
not so subtle swipe at retired

lecturer at the University of the
West Indies.

pleasure at what it said was rising
prices and high inflation, due largely
to prohibitive oil prices and a slew
of hurricanes in the last year, but
roadblocks forced a lockdown of
businesses, the closure of schools

ent, did not support violence,

ever, that persons "do not mis-
take that for weakness".

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE September 11, 2005



9/11 TO


INEVITABLY, comparisons are
being made between the horrific
tragedies in America's Gulf Coast,
resulting from 'Hurricane Katrina",
and the mind-boggling terrorist
strikes of September 11, 2001 in
New York and Washington.
Yesterday, in comparing "Katrina", the worst natural
-disaster in America's living memory, to "9/11", on the
eve of today's fourth anniversary of the
unprecedented man-made disaster, President George
Bush said:
"Our greatest resource in such times (as this) is

the compassionate character of the American people.
Even the most destructive storm cannot weaken the
heart and soul of our nation..."
It is a sentiment well shared by those familiar
with the history and culture of the American people.
At the same time, we are pleased to note that,
given our own courageous efforts to overcome the
worst floods in Guyana's history, as well as the
indomitable spirit displayed by our Caribbean brothers
and sisters in the wake of the ravages from recent
hurricanes, the peoples of this small and poor region
also continue to reveal remarkable resilience in
overcoming their own nightmare disasters.
At this time, as the Bush Administration battles
criticisms for failures to swiftly respond with
imagination to the cries for help in New Orleans and
other affected states of the Gulf Coast, including
charges of neglect and discrimination of the majority
Black population, it would be unfair to ignore how very
much the President himself has become a central
force in driving emergency aid and recovery efforts.
As of late last week, some 97 nations of the world
had dispatched in financial aid and resources just
over US$1 Billion to help victims of 'Katrina', and
more are expected this week. Compared with the
US$52 Billion already approved by the US Congress,
this may seem such a drop in the bucket.
But it is the heart-warming gestures of nations of
the world in responding to a country not accustomed
to receiving humanitarian aid, that really counts, and
not the quantum of assistance.
Guyana's own little effort, as being officially

We have not yet heard of the Bush
Administration's reaction to Cuba's laudable gesture
to send at least 1,000 medical doctors with medical
supplies to help in the massive post-Katrina efforts.
Or, for that matter, if Washington would take up the
US$1 Billion offer of aid from Venezuela, given
America's political differences with those two states
of the Greater Caribbean.
Be that as it may, on this fourth anniversary
of the "9/11" terrorists strikes against America,
the consequences of Hurricane Katrina's
onslaught certainly looms much larger and, not
surprisingly, with criticisms being made of re-
sources shifted to Iraq that could have been
available to fund common diseases and disas-
ter relief at home.
Our best wishes to the American Government and
.people as they courageously struggle to overcome
the horrors and pain of Katrina.

FOR A pretty long time after
its inauguration in 1973, a
frequent negative remark
about functioning of the
Caribbean Community, was
that "CARICOM is for
politicians and the business
It is most
distressing, therefore, that for all
the strides made to bring the
region's economic integration
movement to the point of
expected inauguration in 2006 of
a single market, the Caribbean
Congress of Labour (CCL)
should be echoing in 2005 the
negative sentiment that "the
CSME is about politicians,
politics and the business
As the umbrella body of the
region's affiliated unions, it
must have been frustrating for
the CCL's General Secretary,
George DePeana, to bemoan
the perceived lack of
enthusiasm by the Community's
governments for a more people-
focused approach to the
An approach, the CCL
feels, that would give equal
emphasis on "free movement of
workers", as is the case in
relation to free movement of
goods and capital to facilitate
the business sector..
The reality is that too
many governments have been
pussy-footing on
implementation arrangements
for even the still rather
restricted and discriminatory
categories of skilled Community
nationals being approved for the

right to live and work in any
CARICOM state.
The hesitancy, the double-
speak on the part of some such
administrations, plus a mix
of latent insularism and lack of
proper understanding at levels
.of immigration and customs
services about the implications
of a CSME as a common
economic space, have combined
to deepen cynicism and
disenchantment for this laudable



objective of the 32-year-old
What may have fired up the
CCL itself not without fault
when it comes to initiating
relevant education programmes
among its affiliates and allies of
the region's NGO
community on the plus and
minus factors of the CSME -
were two recent developments,
currently being discussed in the
region, with varying emphasis,

particularly in Barbados and
Trinidad and Tobago.
In the case of Barbados, it
was the denial in July by-the
immigration authority of entry
to the single largest batch of
Guyanese visitors, some 30 of
them, and the consequences
since of escalating emotional
debates about the so-called
"Guyanese presence" in the
What was little known then,
was the comparatively
significant numbers of
Guyanese also being deported
or denied entry to Trinidad and
Tobago. So. unlike the situation
in Barbados. the Patrick
Manning Administration has
been spared the open criticisms
being faced by Prime Minister
Owen Arthur's Government.

But as the debate raged
among Barbadians, for and
against Guyanese migrant
workers, with some sharp
criticisms from Guyanese
about indignities suffered at
Grantley Adams International
Airport, there came the
disclosure of an official
arrangement in progress for
Trinidad and Tobago to import
Jamaican workers for its
booming construction industry.
The Barbados controversy
over Guyanese workers, plus
the move for contract Jamaican
labour for Trinidad and
Tobago's construction industry,
have led to suggestions for the
governments to consider the
introduction of a system of
regulated immigration.
This, of course, would run
counter to the spirit of free
movement of labour in a
Community with a common
economic space..
Calls in Barbados, including
from one academic of the UWI's
Cave Hill campus, for managed
migration to avoid a feared flow

of CARICOM nationals seeking
e m p 1 o y m e n 1
opportunities. have made all the
more challenging the CCL's
anxiety to address the issue of
free movement of labour in the
context of the emerging CSME.
The argument by that
academic (Michael Howard).
was recently stoutly rejected
by a fellow UWI Barbadian
academic (Peter Wickham), who
has been consistent in his own
advocacy of free movement of
labour as integral to the CSME.
Even before these
developments, as revealed last
month, the CCL was seeking a
meeting with Dominica's Prime
Minister Roosvelt Skerrit, who
has lead responsibility for free
movement of labour within the
The CCL's DePeana said he
was determined to get "a clear
-unerstanding on the status quo"
as it relates to actions being
pursued by the Community's
Ministers of Labour on free
movement of workers.
Skerritt was unavailable for
comment. It has not escaped
notice that, like his predecessors
in office the late Prime
Ministers Rosie Douglas and
Pierre Charles he has not
shown much enthusiasm in
advancing his portfolio
responsibility for free
movement of Community
nationals seeking the right to live
and work.

Ultimately, this is a
problem for which the region's
political directorate must share
the blame and, in cooperation
with organised labour and the
business sector, move to correct
For, when the meeting
does take place between the
CCL and Prime Minister
Skerrit the sooner the

The CCL as well as the
Caribbean Association of
Industry and Commerce
(CAIC) and the Caribbean
Policy Development Centre
(grouping of NGOs) would be
invited to review the issue at a
meeting of regional officials

planned for early next month,
possibly in Barbados., ahead of
a ministerial conference later in
the month.
Should organised
labour in Trinidad and
Tobago resist the proposed
deal for contract workers
from Jamaica, this could be
yet another blow to the
concept of free movement of
labour which is an integral
component for a lived
experienced in a common
economic space, as promised
with the CSME.

development, the negative
attitudes of immigration
authorities, plus the
resistance of
others to Community
nationals being facilitated the

accordance with the letter and

spirit of the
CSME. Soon, one begins to
better understand the doubts
and fears over free
movement and the hurdles
that could yet frustrate the
project for a common
economic space.
Apart from legislative and
administrative arrangements
yet to be completed for even
the approved skilled
categories of nationals, there
seems to be an urgent need
for relevant
training programmes for
immigration and customs
officers to be better prepared
to deal with the challenge of
free movement of labour.

including Piarco International
and Grantley Adams

The work of customs and
immigration officials can at
times be quite stressful: and,
like other workers in the
public and private sectors.
they can also have their bad
moments. B.ut unpleasant
attitudes must not be the
norm. Hostility is certainly
not an option.

ment promotion. In particular, this means attacking obstacles
to business, such as removing all unnecessary red tape.
However, Government cannot do it alone and the private sec-
tor must rise to the challenge of demonstrating vision and leader-
ship to create a new entrepreneurial culture and to seize market
opportunities that present themselves, the President pointed out.
He further stated that for the partnership to work, political
will and corporate commitment are needed.
"For my part, I assure you that the political will is there.
As we enter this next wave of enhancing the competitiveness
of our economy, let me assure you that the strategic direction
of my government will remain unambiguously pro-business,
pro-employment, pro-growth."
He said that the country needed an open market-driven
economy. He said that Guyana is preparing to open up further
to meet the challenges of the CARICOM Single Market and
Economy (CSME) and regional integration.
"All of us private and public sector alike must raise
our sights above the challenges posed by globalization and re-
gional integration, and instead prepare to grasp the opportuni-
ties created by the further opening up of our economy".
Guyana also needs a skilled and experienced labour market
if businesses are to compete and win. The President acknowl-
edged that the migration of skilled labour over the years has left
a gap, but "we need to be creative and identify innovative solu-
tions to broaden and deepen the skill base of our economy".
He said that despite difficulties posed by domestic issues
such as crime, and global challenges such as the escalating price
of fuel and threats to access to important markets and increased
competition from around the world, the economic outlook for
the country remains positive.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO} and -Chairman of Banks DIH
Clifford Reis, who made remarks on the company's history and where
it is headed, said it intends to further develop its export product.
He added that the company will be buying the machinery
to ensure that this becomes a reality. Also, a number of activi-
ties, including annual staff and shareholders meetings, school
tours and the annual senior citizens luncheon will be held over
the next year.
Banks DIH, credited as being a 'People's Company', was
established in 1955. Today, there are four divisions bever-
ages, Trisco, Citizens' Bank and Demico.
Credited with the success of the company is Mr. Peter Stanislaus

History of oil prices

The major move in prices
may have been triggered in
1973 when Arab countries got
control of their own oirre-
sources by nationalising all
foreign oil businesses operat-
ing in their countries when
oil was US$8 a barrel up from
US$2 in 1971.
In October 1973 an oil em-
bargo was placed on Israel and
its supporters in the West by
the Organisation of Petroleum
Exporting Countries (OPEC) at
a time when the United States
(U.S.) was importing 33 percent
of its oil requirements. Thus be-
gan the first oil crisis.

When production levels de-
clined next, it was by seven per-
cent. Gas stations were short
on fuel and supply was rationed
in many western countries as
the worst recession since World
War II started in 1973 and con-
tinued intol974.
Some US$97B disappeared
from the New York Stock Ex-
change and the Dow-Jones Stock
Market index fell by 47.
By early 1974, oil prices
skyrocketed by 400 percent due
to OPEC limiting the supply and
prices reached US$25 per barrel.
By 1978, crude oil had re-

duced to US$14 a barrel from
its US$25 high in 1973. How-
ever, a year later the world was
using about 63 million barrels a
The Iranian revolution that
took place in 1979 triggered the
second 'oil shock'. Oil produc-
tion of 2 to 2.5 million barrels a
day disappeared from the mar-
ket causing prices to literally
skyrocket from US$15 per bar-
rel to nearly US$ 40 per barrel.
That same year Mexico's

Complex, with massive reserves
of 35 billion barrels of oil began

(GINA) Government yester-
day announced a further re-
duction of the Consumption
Tax (C-Tax) on gasoline,
from 35 to 20 percent with
immediate effect. Gasoline
at the pumps is expected to
be retailed at approximately
$800 $820 per gallon. The
C-Tax on dieseline was also
reduced from 20 to 15 per-
cent. There continues to be
no tax on kerosene. On Au-
gust 26 last, Government re-
duced the C-Tax from 40 to

35 percent as a result of ris-
ing international oil prices.

In 1981, predictions of
crude oil prices reaching
$US100 a barrel set off an oil

GECOM of sloth is but a ploy
to provide a cover for or an ex-

Continuous registration

after the house-to-house regis-

It was the actions of the
PNCR that prevented that pro-

If that Party had cooperated
with the process since then, this
exercise would have gone a far
The period 1996,-1997 saw

The violence un-

(30,000 from Region #6 and
10,000 from Region #2) in the
process of mass objections. Al-
most all.the persons objected to
were Indo-Guyanese.
Under the pressure of time,

No time for obstructing ...

(From page 11)
they had done to
Doodnauth Singh in 1997) in-
vited the International IDEA to
do an Audit and a System's Re-
view of the 2001 Elections Pro-
cess in Guyana.
The IDEA found that
...the MRC Code field is set
as unique in the SOL data-
base, and this control is in it-
self sufficient to ensure that
there are no duplicates. Nev-
ertheless we conducted a test
that confirms this is the case.
We confirmed that there are
no duplicate MRC Codes on
the database." It added "...the
Audit and Systems Team
found that there were a num-
ber of areas in the electoral
process in which errors had
been committed by the elec-
toral administration. The
bulk of these occurred in the
voter's registration and data
capture areas of the electoral
process. The majority of
these errors can be put down
to the following causes: An
unrealistic election timetable
and lack of time; outdated
and bureaucratic processes
and procedures; an unwieldy
and time consuming decision
making process in GECOM
thereby causing unnecessary
delays." They concluded
"...In certain instances, it
would appear that GECOM
and its staff were too accom-
modating of the demands and
sensitivities of the political
It should also be pointed
out that the CARICOM Audit
Team commenting on the prob-
lems of the 1997 elections
placed most of the blame on the
insufficient training that elec-
tions day workers had, an exer-
cise the PNC obstructed for the
2001 elections.

Now for the 2006 elections,
the PNCR once again does not
want to give the Elections Com-
mission time to do these things
in a timely fashion. The motive
could be that it would remove
another reason for them to re-
sort to violence should they
loose the elections again.

In relation to the database,
the PNCR has been trying des-
perately to discredit it.
However; all the indepen-
dent audits have given it very
high marks. Here are a few
comments from the IDEA
"...The tests conducted con-
firmed that the 440,185 voters
printed on the OLE and the Ad-
dendum would be more that
99% accurate representation of
the registered electorate. De-
spite the extra workload and the
time consuming decision mak-
ing, GECOM achieved its objec-
tive of producing a voters list
that was highly accurate and in-
ternationally comparable..."
The mistakes they jound in
the whole electoral process
were minimal. Here is what they)
had to say on this score
"...GECOM managed to print
a final voters list of reasonably
high accuracy which can stand
up to international scrutiny and
is comparable internationally.
In essence, in a voters list of
approximately 440,185, the er-
rors discovered were fewer that
1000 and were mostly due to
polling station misallocation..."
These audits only quieted
the PNCR for a while. Shortly
after the Commission began to
meet under the present Chair-
man the PNCR began to make
wild accusations claiming that
the database was tampered
Fortunately the Commis-
sion under the Chairmanship of

Mr. Joe Singh had left a clone
of the database with the UNDP
for safe keeping. The PNCR
charges could have been checked
by comparing the GECOM
held database with that at the
UNDP. That was done.
The database was opened
by the IT department of
GECOM in cooperation with an
IT expert from the IDEA and in
the presence of political Parties.
Here is what they had to say
"...the Database Opening
Exercise was conducted to
satisfy stakeholders of the
integrity of the GECOM
Master Registration Data-
base. The methodology, de-
veloped by IFES Consultant,
Mr. Yard, used to validate the
database involves the use of
a Cyclic Redundancy
Checksum (CRC) generation
technique. The CRC genera-
tion program (CGP) will gen-
erate checksums which when
compared can establish
whether two sets of data are
equal. In this case, the
GECOM Database is being
compared with a duplicate
copy that was in the posses-
sion of the UNDP after the
completion of the IDEA Audit
in 2001..."
They added "... for pur-
poses of data validation, the
CRC is nearly flawless. The
odds against two different
rows of data generating the
same CRC are I in
4,294,967,296. This gives a
margin of error of
The report concluded: "We
can say with confidence that
the MRDB data on the
GECOM server has not been
altered since the audit was
conducted by IDEA."

sults that they wanted the
PNCR again charged that the
database was being tampered
In response to that the Elec-

Vedove, a Swiss expert to exam-
ine the complaints of the PNC.
He concluded: "We have in-
vestigated all the evidence
that the PNCR have provided
us from the security logs. We
have found no evidence to
support any allegations that
the security of the database
was breached, or that the sys-
tem security at GECOM was
at risk."
Why, one may ask is the
PNCR continuing these absurd
claims when all the independent
experts have over and over veri-
fied that the database was se-
cured and indeed, to quote the
International IDEA, "...there is
no doubt that the elections

The answer is clear: the
PNCR does not want to have.
.continuous registration in
Guyana. They do not want a
system that is free of contro-
versy because it would rob
them of an excuse to destabilise
the country and retard its devel-
opment again.

Their present demand for
"bio-metrics" confirms this
view. The bio-metric call started
when all the other arguments
were exhausted. They had to
find something else to make an

issue of.
I say this because the data-
base at the Elections Commis-
sion already has a lot of "bio-
metrics" of the registrants.
They have a photograph, a sig-
nature, colour of hair, eyes and
any distinguishing marks. They
also have the left thumb print
of the registrants; all of these
constitute bio-metrics. These
are bio-metric features used in
many democracies for proper

Empathy with Katrina's victims

The devastating flood in New
Orleans and Biloxi commu-
nities on the United States
Gulf Coast by Hurricane
Katrina some eight days ago
produced some of the most
gut wrenching images on
television: flattened build-
ings and flyovers, roads and
highways now turned into riv-
ers, dead bodies floating,
houses submerged, a city
looking like a lake. These
pictures and the stories of
victims and survivors evoke
deep feelings of sorrow. The
aftermath of Hurricane
Katrina, which was earlier
thought to be a mere tropical
storm, reminds us of nature's
unstoppable force and capac-
ity to destroy.
In Guyana, we too experi-
enced nature's wrath with the
January 2005 floods caused by
the highest recorded rainfall. But
the flood in the low-lying New
Orleans and other areas was
much greater in size and magni-
tude than what we faced earlier
this year. Given Guyana's lim-
ited physical and economic in-
frastructure and the US's more
advanced development, anec-
dotally our flood disaster is
likely to have greater long-term
effect on the national economy.
The destruction of a cultur-

ally-rich U.S. city, the sufferings
endured by thousands for days,
the dislocation of an entire city
population and the unprec-
edented nature of this type of
disaster for the U.S. can only be
equated with the flooding which
occurs in certain parts of Asia.
Those who lived through
our own flood, especially resi-
dents along the East Coast of
Demerara would better under-
stand the sufferings, fears and
anxieties faced by the victims in
the flood stricken areas in the
Guyana was swift to offer
assistance to the people and
government of the U.S. Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo spoke to
the US government representa-
tive on our offer of assistance.
He further initiated a discussion
with various non-governmental
and charitable groups on a total
Guyana response. Yes, it is true
that our contribution is but a
drop in the ocean measured
against the help needed in the
U.S. to fully recover from the
aftermath of hurricane Katrina.
As a good friend of the U.S. and
a member of the community of
nations, we are obligated to play
our part. More importantly, the
U.S. government was among
those who pledged and deliv-
ered help to our country during

the flood disaster.
The possibility exists that
U.S.-based Guyanese could be
among victims, as the latest U.S.
census shows that about 300
U.S.-based Guyanese were re-
ported to be living in the New
Orleans area. The Guyana dip-
lomatic mission in the U.S.
would be tracking the situa-
To date, there has riot been
a final body count as corpses
are still being recovered, cost of
destruction of property and the
final cost needed for recovery in
the flooded areas are still being
assessed. This will take some
time. And while some are reluc-
tant to leave their flooded
homes, many say they would
not be returning.
The panic and frustration
shown on television are under-
standable in such situations. Al-
ready, the debates about the
pace of and quality of the early
response to help flood-hit resi-
dents is raging at all levels of the
U.S. government and nation.
But more important now,


An International Organisation in Georgetown is seeking applicants for the

elements to create distractions
from the relief and recovery ef-

some lessons for Guyana as the
threat of flood always loom
given the reality that about 90%
of our population live along the
coast which is below sea level.
Comforting for us has been the
quality of leadership and rapid-
ity of the flood relief and recov-
ery exercises to our own disas-
ter. This has now been comple-
mented by the on-going work to
boost our flood-control capac-
ity. We all will be following this
situation closely.
All those affected do have
the moral support and sympa-
thy of our people and as one
U.S. army general associated
with the relief effort said there
are more important phases to
come, which require much
strength and resilience.

We mourn the loss of Mr. Clarence Williams, agent
extraordinaire and timeless icon of the insurance
industry, who passes away on August 18, 2005.

Mr. Williams joined CLICO in June, 1947 as a
Sales Representative, at a time when the Company had
just opened its doors in Guyana over the Broodie and
Rainer Drugstore in Water Street in Georgetown.

With his sight set on becoming a lawyer, he joined
the insurance industry to raise funds needed to facilitate
his studies. But his dream was not to be realized. Fate
stepped in when a death claim by a young woman, the
wife of a policy holder, changed his whole outlook on
Insurance. From his moment of epiphany, he made it
his life's calling to help people utilise insurance
planning for the security of their loved ones.

In September 1947, just three months after joining
the company, Mr. Williams issued the 1st Endowment
Policy for CLICO Guyana. With the decentralisation of
CLICO operation in Guyana, Mr. Williams relocated
to Bartica in 1964 where he opened and managed a
general agency. He continued in this capacity until he
retired.in 1983

Retirement was not enough to slow Mr. Williams
down, and so he continued to produce business and
was consistently among the top ten producers in every
category of the Leaders' Club and Million Dollar Round
Table. He qualified for, and attended numerous
convention held by CLICO, and continued to provide
years of persistency and high-quality service to the
Company as a Sales Representative.

A kind, soft-spoken and patient gentleman,
SMr. Williams will be missed by all at CLICO for his
sterling contributions to the wellbeing of our clients
and their families, and his tireless commitment to our
corporate growth and development.

The media delegation at a TV station in Inner Mongolia.

By Ruel Johnson

Last week, a media delegation
from Guyana lead by Informa-
tion Liaison to the President,
Robert Persaud went on a
three-city tour of China. The
trip, sponsored by the Chi-
nese government was in-
tended to showcase both the
development and underdevel-
opment in China as well to
give an alternate view of
China outside of a Western
Media perspective.

"Welcome to misty, murky
Beijing," says that British Air-
ways pilot when the gigantic
Boeing 747-400 comes to a com-
plete stop at the Beijing Inter-
national Airport.
The sardonic, somnolent,
identifiably 'British' tone he em-
ploys seems supported by the
sunless, grey sky. The surreal
mists that hang over Beijing lend
to the illusion that the city goes
on into infinity.
Beijing is an undeaniabl]

- whose perceptions of China
had been shaped primarily b>

pressways are not quite what
one expects.
If BReijing is modem China,
then modem Oina seems a place
where s-cience and magic. realili

utes into our walk around the
Square a woman approaches our
party and offers to sell one
member of the delegation a Rolex
wristwatch for 150 renminbi
(roughly US $18 or Guyana
$3,800; after being given a stem
look by a stealthy policeman,
she runs away leaving two of her
watches behind. We find her a
few minutes after and return
them to her.
With the liberalisation of
China's economy and the lessen-

enterprise directed at tourists
seems to be in overdrive. On a

Beijing is the centre of power
of the Chinese government.
While it is not as murky as the
British Air pilot made it out to
be, there is something to be said
for its sheer largeness, the
sombreness of much of its archi-
tecture that even the abundant
trees and the glitzy advertising
posters can't take away.

In the museum in
Huhehaote City (alternatively
called Hohhot City) the capital
of Inner Mongolia Autonomous
region, a statue of Mongol con-
queror Gengis Khan astride a
rearing horse is a splendid re-
minder of the territory's glorious

past. The great warrior was in
fact born there, as Temujin, and
his mausoleum is located in
Ordos City.
Despite its well-paved
roads, post-modern statues and
reputation as the site of the most
splendid man-made fountain in
Asia, even their capital city the
people of Inner Mongolia hold
on to their heritage. Hohhot is
less hectic than Beijing, the
people more friendly and relaxed
(not that residents of Beijing
While Inner Mongolia is
touted as an ethnic enclave for
the Mongol people, the fact is
that China's majority ethnic
group, the Han, are also the eth-
nic majority in the territory..
However, the vast majority of
administrative posts are, by stat-
ute, held by individuals of Mon-
gol ethnic heritage.
Like most government offi-
cials we meet during the trip, the
officials in Inner Mongolia are
precise and efficient in their du-

ties; but unlike Beijing, they
possess a certain joie de vivre
that seems suited to a primitive
celebration on the open plains,
than the staid pseudo-informal-
ity of-the average cocktail party.
At a banquet hosted by the
noticeably female Vice-govemor
of Inner Mongolia the beauti-
ful Win Lan the media delega-
tion was given a traditional
Mongol welcome which con-
sisted of a serenade by a musi-
cal group, a shot of potent (fire-
in-your-throat-and-belly) rice
wine, and a welcome sashing
with a simple, white silk scarf.
During the banquet, there arere-
peated toasts ; after a while, a
senior regional official, a burly
man with a striking esemblance
to a popular portrait of Gengis
Khan, openly expresses his fond
admiration of the only female
member of the delegation whom
he later dubs "chi chi" girl,
Mongol for "flower'.

that the players are made start-
ing with the shell and ending with

During the latter half of the
nineteenth century and the ear-
lier half of the twentieth, Shang-
hai oilce known as the Pearl of
the Orient was effectively
non-Chinese, a foreign enclave
carved by cannon fire and con-
cession into mainland China.
The city only came under con-
trol of the communist govern-
ment of China in 1949.
Today Shanghai, with over 16
million people, is China's largest
city and seemingly still a work in
progress. Even without a major
international event imminent,
flocks of yellow construction
cranes still hover over the city's
skyline. While 'colonial' (for

want of a better term) architecture
is still preserved in areas like the
Bund, the city's traditional seat of
power, and in the French quarter
modem Shanghai is an eclectic ar-
chitectural maverick with boldly-
curved, swooping buildings popu-
lating the cityscape. One of the
most unconventional edifices is the
giant Oriental Pearl Television built
in 1994; the tower, at 468 metres,
is the tallest in Asia and the third
tallest in the world. On an obser-
vation deck some 68 stories up,
you can see all of Shanghai on a
clear day, both Pudong on the East-
em (tower) side of the Huangpu
River, and Puxi on its Western

Shanghai is the heart of
China's modernisation. Far
more cosmopolitan than even
Beijing, here the English is far
better though not perfect, and
the English font is larger on the
street signs.
Officials in Shanghai seem a
bit sleeker than their Beijing
counterparts, more geared to
business than the business of
government. In Shanghai the
young and the tech savvy seem
to have more, at least equal,
chances of advancing than the
aging bureaucrat would in
Beijing. Two cases in point
would be Ellen Huang, Chief of

U.S. Embassy hosts

young voters workshop
TOMORROW, the United States Embassy will be holding
a Young Persons Voter Education workshop at the Le
Meridien Pegasus from 9:00 h to 14:00 h.
According to a release from the Embassy, with national elec-
tions scheduled for next year, the embassy believes that this
programme will be particularly useful for first time young
Guyanese voters.
The workshop will be led by Elections expert and commu-
nicator Ms. Ann Stone. Topics to be addressed include: Why
should I vote, why voting is not just a right but a responsibil-
ity, one person, one vote, we should all have equal say about
future of the community, women in politics, why it is impor-
tant for women to be involved in Government.
It will be Ms. Stone's second speaking engagement in
Guyana, but she has spoken about elections in several
other countries, including Sierra Leone, Israel and Jor-
dan, and she also worked on numerous political campaigns.

There is no replacement of your love
It is painful when loved-ones have to part
It leaves a broken heart that no words,
No flowers, or tears, can heal.
You are no longer in our lives to share our
hopes and dreams.
But God is in charge and He knows best
So He called you Home to eternal rest i
A day we shall never forget.
Your gentle face and patient smile.
With sadness we recall you had a kind
word for each of us

.. And were beloved by all.
So bitter was the trial to part from one so good as you.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE September 11. 2005 ,


Sports View by Neil Kumar

TODAY there are too many people who are sporting with
sport. Far too many people who committed un-pardonable
sins as sport administrators, people who failed to make any
contribution towards the development in sport are continu-
ing to draw down from sport.
There are several lessons to be learnt from the recent fiasco
that took place at the Futsal Final that was held at the Cliff
Anderson Sports Hall.

The indisciplined behaviour by the organiser of the activ-
ity must never be accepted. People must not be allowed to mis-
use our sportsmen. The organiser of the programme signed a
. contract and he agreed to conclude all activities not later than
12:00 midnight. He signed to sell all drinks in plastic cups and
not bottles. The contract clearly demanded that NO strong'al-
coholic beverages must be consumed on the premises only beer
and malts.
In respect to security, the organiser of the activity affixed
his signature and agreed to have a minimum of six policemen in
uniform throughout the activity. Above all he agreed to finish
the competition on August 20, 2005.
However, he deliberately prolonged the tournament so as
to hold it on Saturdays when he can attract larger crowds.
Today, there is dishonesty in the system. The organiser of
the money-making activity failed to inform the public that he
signed a contract to ensure that vendors do not enter the com-
pound of the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall to sell.
Further, they were not allowed to sell on the Cliff Ander-
son Sports Hall bridges or in close proximity of the Cliff Ander-
son Sports Hall.
The organiser broke the contract that he also had with the.
Guyana Football Federation (GFF) and was only interested in
his personal aggrandisement.

The security risk is today a matter of great concern to all
Guyanese. Clearly there are some people who are enjoying the
crime situation. This is dangerous. It is time that all efforts are
put in place to stop this deterrent to sport.
Our youths must be exposed to a more meaningful life and
they must be taught to enjoy sports.
Crime, violence, drugs and particularly anti-social behaviour
must not be seen by our youths. We must work towards en-
suring that our people are allowed to develop in a secure envi-
ronment and enjoy healthy lifestyles. Smoking is prohibited in
the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall and smoking should be banned
in all public places. Security is .a wide ranging phenomenon.
Hence it must be taken seriously and those who go against the
law must pay the heavy fine.
As I-am writing this article, I am indeed shocked to
hear that Donald Allison, a prominent Boxing coach was
executed outside the Agricola Community Centre. Today,
what is happening in our country is a clear indication that
these are serious ills in our community. First of all, we
are experiencing serious problems with deportees and the
drug issues are getting serious.
The deportees have a right to be at home. However, genu-
ine efforts should be put in place to make living comfortable
for all.
Allison, a former local Amateur Champion and Professional
Boxer is credited with resuscitating the Ricola Gym. He was
deported to Guyana from the U.S. in January 2002. The Ricola
Gym is very active and from all indications he was doing a good
The cause of the crime situation seems to be wide ranging.
However, the effect is not appreciated and it is becoming fear-
Guyana needs professional and decent people to offer lead-
ership to our youths. Our hangover from the past is causing
serious problems. Some people are immune to wrongdoings.
Sport is certainly a victim of the dirty spills of the past.
Some National Associations are doing exceptionally good
work for the development of sports. However, there are sev-
eral sport disciplines that are suffering from a syndrome of in-
dividualism. Bad manners, a culture of laziness and 'I want to
be in this thing' syndrome are causing serious concerns in the
development of some sports.
Rugby, Squash, Volleyball, Karate, Cricket and Football are
some of the disciplines that we can feel proud of. However,
can we say the same thing about some of the other disciplines
such as Basketball, Amateur Boxing?.
There is a need for a thorough and comprehensive study
of the sporting arena in Guyana. This will help to ensure
that we move forward as a healthy, coordinated and suc-
cessful country.

Hayden relieved

by Oval century
MATTHEW Hayden admitted he was relieved to put a sum-
mer of disappointments behind him by hitting his first Test
century of the Ashes series.
The Australian opener finished the third day of the fifth
Test against England unbeaten on 110.
And he told BBC Sport: "It's been frustrating for me. But
in the face of what's happened this summer I've been patient
and my rewards have come.
"I think I played nice and straight and was difficult to get
Hayden twice came close to being dismissed as the ball only
narrowly avoided the clutches of Andrew Strauss and Paul
But his partnerships with Justin Langer, Ricky Ponting and
Damien Martyn helped Australia finish the day on 277-2.
He described his own innings as "the way I should have
played all summer".
But he added: "There is no point looking back and we have
an enormously important day today.
"There's full credit to England, who have played really well
throughout and remained patient. They've come at us pretty
hard and got the rewards."
Hayden added that the Australian batsmen would continue
to press home their advantage on the fourth morning.
"I think our plan now is to take the game as deep as we
can," he said.
"The more we go the more tired the England bowlers
will get. I don't think we necessarily need to worry about
run rate." (BB S t- 0 <

No play on second

Banks Beer final

A HEAVY downpour of rain
just after 07:30 h yesterday
morning that lasted about
forty-five minutes resulted in
no play possible on the sec-
ond day of the 2004 Banks
Beer three-day first division
cricket final between Rose
Hall Town Courts and Young
Warriors, being played at the
Albion Community Centre
Although the outfield could
have allowed play to commence
by noon. severe seepage onto
the pitch through covers that
had holes forced umpires D.
Somwaru and Rafik Latif, to-
gether with standby Joseph
Simon, to abandon play for the
day after having,a finat inspec-
' tion at 15:30 h.

The entire northern half of
the pitch was wet and although
the ground staff worked fever-
ishly to make play possible, the
overcast conditions all day did
not help their efforts.
When play ended on
Friday's opening day, Young
Warriors were 24 without loss
replying to Rose Hall Town
Courts' first innings total of
Openers Richard Ramdeen
and Anil Solomon were the men
at the crease, unbeaten on (13)
and (9) respectively.
Esaun Crandon hit (79) and
Delbert (51) for Rose Hall
Town while off-spinner Balram
Samaroo grabbed 5 for 95 from
29 overs bowling for Young
Warriors. '

1 day in
With playing conditions al-
lowing for the reclaim of lost
time, play will start half-hour
earlier at 10:00 h on today's
third and final day and will also
end half-hour later than the
scheduled 17:00 h.
Meanwhile, chairman of the
Berbice Cricket Board of Con-
trol (BCBC) Competitions
Committee, Carl Moore, told
Chronicle Sport yesterday that
in the event there is no first in-
nings decision by the end of this
afternoon's play, the two teams
will be declared joint winners.
Rose Hall Town Courts,
the double crowned national
limited overs champions are
hunting their first ever three-
day title at this level while
Young Warriors are looking
for their second, having won
for the firsttime in.2001.

THE four top finishers of the
preliminary competition in
the inaugural Winston
McKend Memorial football
tournament, organised and
run by the West Demerara
FA, will tonight decide who
will contest the championship
match worth over $100 000..
In the final two round-robin
group 'A' matches played last
Friday at the Uitvlugt ground
Young Achievers registered their
first win of the competition
with a 2-0 win over Stewartville
in the first game of the double-

Achievers needed to end on a
winning note after losing their
previous two games.
In the feature game of the
night Pouderoyen produced a
sustained second half attack to
earn a come-from-behind 2-1

victory over Den Amstel. The
victors had found themselves
trailing after twenty minutes of
play, thanks to a Justin Sandy
After soaking up tremen-
dous pressure the Den Amstel
defence finally cracked in the
70th minute when Ulric
Garraway equalised. Clement
Browne then scored the winner
three minutes later to give
Pouderoyen their win in as
many games to top the group
while Den Amstel with their
first defeat after two wins oc-

In tonight's match-ups,
Pouderoyen will confront

"THE fundamental thing
wrong with basketball in
Guyana is that it lacks strong
club structure". This was the
bold statement by president of
the Georgetown Amateur
Basketball Association
(GABA) Chris Bowman.
Bowman acknowledged that
his executives have failed to ad-
dress that problem in their first
year in office. He is however,
confident that year two will be
more fruitful.
To that end when the execu-
tives recently met, they devised
a plan to improve the clubs in


their association.
This plan is to categorise
the clubs, using a one-to-three-
star method. From two stars up,
the clubs will be accredited with
the GABA Basketball
Clubmark Award.
In order to be recognized as
a one-star club, the club must be
affiliated to the GABA with at
least 15 registered members.
The club should also have a
coach and/or coordinator (e.g.

qualified teacher, former player,
To qualifying as a two-star
club, the one-star status must be
achieved while the club must
have a written constitution and
a good management structure
that consists of a president,
vice-president, secretary, trea-
surer, public relations officer,
manager and coach.
The other requirement that
the club must have in place is a
registered coach, while they
must also have a creditable track
To be recognized with
three-star status, a club must
achieve the requirements for
The club must also have
plans in place to develop bas-
ketball activity for coaches' de-
velopment, junior development,
technical development and in-
creased registered membership.
Other requirements include
a registered coach and technical
The club must also partici-
pate regularly in GABA-
recognised competitions at both
at junior and senior levels, while
having a home base, an official
sponsor, demonstrating that it
has direct link with a local
school and must annually
organise a major event.
Bowman indicated that if
this structure is in place, then
GABA will look to improve on
their number of accredited
clubs, increase the number of
affiliated members, increase
the number of youth (8-18
year-olds) members while also
increasing the number of school-
dub links. (Faizool Deo)

THE much anticipated
semifinals of the GFL's

FIONA Atherly-Ward went down in local
rugby history for scoring the first points in
female competition to give Yamaha Caribs
a historic opening win in the inaugural Women's
League sevens rugby championship at the
National Park, yesterday.
Atherly-Ward raced some 22 metres to register the first try,

finishing a nice piece of play with good passing from the western
side of field. She collected the ball closer to the eastern side and
out-ran any opposition in just three minutes of play.
The ladies wowed the crowd from almost the first whistle and
Hornets carried out the first attack for the try line. Scrum half Karen
Carter collected the ball from a scrum at about the half-way line
and made a break for the northern try line. She was brought down
about five metres away.
Caribs led 5-0 at halftime, but no more points materialised

EVERY DAY, your complexion works to de
fend itself from a host of Aggressors. Dis
cover the most common, and find out what
you can do to save your skin

We should all know by now that excessive sun exposure can be
skin aging and dehydrating. If you've ever been to a Mediterranean
island and noticed the sun-damaged, prune-like faces of the local
fishermen, you'll understand what we mean. However, the good
news is you don't have to end up looking like said fishermen, so
long as you take action to protect your skin in the sun, and that
doesn't just mean on the beach, as UV (ultraviolet) rays reach you
even on clouds days in the city.
Appareiitly. 90 per cent of sun damage occurs on a daily basis.
Experts recommend an SPF of 15+, worn every day of the year, to
protect our skin from aging UVA rays. Fair skin types should be
looking at sun.protection of 25+, and all skin types should take
into account the sun's intensity before choosing a suitable sun pro-
tection 'product.

The environment in which we live has become a threat to our
skin, and pollution is a significant enemy, coating our skin in grime
and clogging our pores. And, wherever there are motor vehicles,
there is pollution, so don't think that by living the rural life you
are immune..
Take action by using a good moisturiser containing UV protec-
tion and antioxidants, and by wearing make-up which acts as a bar-
rier and prevents any 'nasties' reaching your skin. At the end of
the day, cleanse thoroughly to remove every last trace of make-up
and dirt. Continually moving from centrally heated to air conditioned
atmospheres can also be a source of complexion confusion, which
is why skin often acts differently from season to season. Struggling
to maintain its moisture levels and pH balance, skin will eventually
become dry and dehydrated, so treat it in a similar way to how
you dress to suit the temperature outside use a richer moisturising
cream or barrier product when it's miserable and rainy or cold, and
a lighter lotion when the weather is warmer.

Everyone suffers from the occasional bout of stress, but when
emotions spiral out of control, your skin is among the first organs
to suffer.
Dryness, sensitivity, spots and excess oil are the external signs
of internal stress, while constant frowning can lead to deep-set fa-
cial creases and lines which only surgery will be able to rectify. So,
it pays to learn how to wind down and chill out at the end of a
hard day.

Switch on the answer machine and try a little meditation,
yoga, an aromatherapy bath, or treat yourself to a massage
or the latest blockbuster. All are effective de-stressers that
are easy on the pocket and relatively simple to incorporate
into the most hectic of weeks.
Plenty of sleep is essential for good skin, as burning the
candle at both ends will inevitably result in a tired and drawn
complexion. If your sleepless nights are not due to all-night
clubbing sessions, try cutting out caffeine after 6pm, and have
a hot bath containing a few drops of lavender essential oil,
followed by a milky drink. Take a book to bed and read until
you feel tired (nothing work-related though), and you should
be in la-la land in no time at all...

Chemicals in cigarette smoke can damage the appearance of the
skin permanently. Tobacco smoke restricts blood vessels, reducing
the amount of blood flowing to the skin, and therefore depleting it
of oxygen and nutrients. Smoking also produces free radicals which
trigger an inflammatory response throughout the body, ultimately
aging you faster in general,.people who smoke tend to look up to
a third older than those of the same age who do not smoke. The
habit also thins, dehydrates and re-
duces collagen levels in the skin.

quired, so step up intake of viLta-

added boost. However, no amount of pills or products will guard
against future damage, because every cigarette you smoke depletes
the levels of vitamins and antioxidants in your body, so it's. time to
kick the habit for the sake of your looks and your health.

Ever suffered with a red, blotchy or spotty complexion the
morning after a full-on night out? It's no wonder post-party skin
often flares up, when you consider that a heavy drinking. session
puts the body's detoxification system into overdrive, and a direct
strain on the liver, kidneys and skin, all of which have to suddenly

deal with, and filter out, a huge amount of additional toxins. While
you may, or may not, be regretting that last vodka shot of the
evening, your body will be crying out for water, so work on rehy-
drating your skin both internally and externally by applying a hy-
drating or detoxifying face mask when you get in or the following
morning, and downing a couple of pints of water, both of which
should soon get you back on track.

Is there a special way to apply moisturiser so that I can
maximise its benefits?
Yes. Start by gently applying just over a five-pence-sized dab
of moisturiser to your skin. You don't need to use more than this -
to do so is a waste of money.
Next, using an upward, circular motion, lightly massage the
moisturiser into your face. Make sure not to pull or tug on the
skin. If your skin is oily, don't massage it too much. Facial mas-
sage stimulates the oil glands to p,'oduce more sebum',. Which is the

lasi thing oily skin needs.
When you apply cream under youreyes, do s6 gently. as this
is the most delicate skin on the face. Use your fourth finger (which
is the weakest) and pat the cream back and forth under the eye,
starting at the outer comer and working inwards. Do this twice a
day, once in the morning before applying makeup and once at night
after removing it.

Finally, don't put eye cream :on your upper lids before bed-
time, otherwise you will wake up with puffy lids.

Like the idea of cleansing your skin from the inside out? Check
this out.
What Would you do for skin that's soft, fresh and unblemished?
All the expensive skin care products in the world won't achieve
healthy skin without help from your diet.

Fish contains oils that will help nourish your skin. This
diet includes fish options at lunch and dinner to add lustre and soft-
ness to your complexion.
Ground flaxseeds (linseeds) are an excellent source of
omega-3 fatty acids, which promote good skin health. This meal
plan adds flaxseed to your breakfast cereal for a healthy start to
your day.,
.Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin. This diet includes
plenty of dark orange (carrots, sweet potatoes) and dark green
(broccoli, spinach, kale) vegetables all of which are high in vitamin
Vitamin E helps promote good-looking skin, which is why
this diet includes nuts such as hazelnuts and almonds which are
high in vitamin E as snacks.

How can you revitalise tired, drawn-looking skin? Do masks or
facials really have any lasting effect?
The easiest and quickest way to freshen or revive a tired face,
is to dip a clean flannel in ice-cold water and place it on the face for
5 minutes. Your face will have a healthy glow, signifying increased
blood circulation to the skin's surface.
Exfoliating will also remove the top, dead layer of skin, and aid
skin renewal, and is best done at night. Either use a gentle facial
brush and gentle cleanser, or a simple almond scrub add 1-2 table-
spoons of ground almonds to any natural oil.
Masks provide a temporary refreshing, cleansing and tight-
ening effect, as do some simpler facials, but the more sophis-
ticated, expensive facials do provide deeper, more long-term
results. Some facials use safe and low-level electrical impulses
to 'reprogramme' the muscles of your face and body,
revitalising muscles, and assisting skin tissues through im-
proved blood circulation.




in retrospect
ART FIVE of 'The Journey' staged on
Thursday August 25 at The National Art
Gallery, Castellani House, was a
resounding success, as, against the backdrop
of twilight's last gleam easing into evening,
chirping crickets and squabbling parrots, the
jam-packed to over-spilling audience was
treated to a most gratifying evening of
The event was held under the theme 'School Days are
Happy, Happy Days'. The programme proper was divided into
four segments, the first being 'School Bell Ring', which opened
with an anonymous piece of prose called 'The Creation of
Teachers', followed by John Stembeck's 'The Pearl' (read
by Russell Lancaster). and Louise Bennett's 'New Scholar'.
But all too soon. it was examination rime. whrch is where
"Examination Centre" came in. followed by the awful 'Judge
Dreadword' (performed by Doctor Rovin "From-Word-to-
Word' Deodat), and ending with students having to resort to
fantasy in order to deal with 'Exercise Book'.
In segment two, we gravitated to 'Old Favouriles' the likes
of 'The Sacrilege' by Thomas Hardy i1840-1928) performed
by John Stevenson. who was born where that poem was set:
'Where Dunkery frowns on E.\on Moor'.
It was still "Green Days by the River' for many of us
w hen Nazim Hussein presented a %erbose version of 'Jack and
Jill', while Sasha Wallace gave a good account of herself in "The
Highwayman'. using her knee-length hair to portray 'Bess,
the landlord's daughter/plaituung a dark red love-knot into her long
black hair'
At this point in the journey, there arose a hitch.
as the producer was unable to resurrect 'Nlacbeth' be-
cause the person earmarked to pla.1 Lady Macbeth had
fallen ill. thus leasing the person to plain Macbeth
stranded with the blood-stained knife in hand, with-
out a soliloquy or an alibi.
Segment three %as, a proud moment for all Gu.anese v. ith
the performance of poem, from the current CXC syllabus unt-
ten by Guvanese including Fred D'" guiar. Mark IMcWan. Ian
McDonald. Mairun Caner. Da id Dabvdeen and Sasenarine

dents of Monar Educaton instirute. NManon Academy, Queen's
College, and the Secrelary General i Ag. i of UNESCO.
And. taking care of another hitch in the journey\ was Phyllhs
Carter. reading 'This is a dark time. my Lo'e' written ht. her
late. great husband, Martin Carter
With Lulu singing in the background., and 'Aunue Paulette'
Paul reading from the find]l pages of 'To Sir With Love" by

'Class Dismissed'

person, in his closing remarks, directed the gathering to
the libraries and book stores, encouraging one and all to

Murder accused pleads guilty to

manslaughter, is freed by

Appellate Court

real lucky man.
Indicted for murder in 1972,
he had his plea to the lesser
count of manslaughter accepted
by both the trial judge and the
prosecuting counsel.
Then, when the matter was
brought before the Court of Ap-
peal, then constituted of Jus-
tices Guya Persaud, PA
Cummings and Victor Crane,
both the conviction and sen-
tence were quashed on the
grounds that the trial was a nul-
lity. As such, Zaman was set
free. '
Justice Persaud, who deliv-
ered the main judgment, noted
that the case against Zaman, as
disclosed in the depositions
taken by the presiding magis-
trate at the preliminary inquiry,
was that he and thd deceased
had had an altercation in a house
on Saturday, April 29, 1972, at
about 7:00pm, when he stabbed
him in the region of the abdo-
men with a knife he had had in
his possession.
Mortally wounded, the de-
ceased was taken to the hospi-
tal where he was examined by
.two doctors, one of whom
found him to be suffering from

lacerations to the neck, left arm
and left hand, and "a stab
wound with evisceration in the
anterior auxiliary line of the ab-
domen." In other words, his in-
nards were hanging out of his

der. But due to the lack of evi-
dence as to the cause of death,
the magistrate had no alternative
but to commit him to stand trial
-for felonious wounding. ,
During the preliminary in-
quiry, Counsel appearing for the



The other, who also de-
tected a 2cm long wound on the
deceased's left wrist, was a bit
more detailed in his description
of the abdominal wound in that
he said it was located "over the
left eighth intercostal space, an-
terior auxiliary line... [and that]
an X-ray of the chest showed
pneumo thorax on the left side."
Both doctors conceded,
however, that the injuries were
life-threatening, whereupon the
deceased was admitted into the
institution, where he died some
seven days later, on May 6.
It was based on these facts,
Justice Persaud said, :that
Zaman was charged with mur-

State attempted to have admit-
ted into evidence the
pathologist's report on the
post-mortem examination,
which sought to indicate the.
cause of death.
; Having regard to the state
of the law at the time, however,,
.the document was clearly inad-
missible, Justice Persaud said,,
as, even though subsection 4,,
Section 43 of the Evidence Or-
dinance, Chapter 25, was.
amended by the Miscellaneous
Enactments i Amendment) Or-.
dmance 1961 (No. 29) to include
the Government Bacteriologist
and Pathologist, the
pathologists certificate was not

admissible in cases involving
Noting that this situation
has since been remedied by the
Law Revision Act, 1972 (No. 4)
enacted on July 21, 1972, so
that such a document would
now be admissible in evidence
to prove the cause of death, the
judge said:
"Defence Counsel does
not impeach the order of
committal but rather sub-
mits that the indictment is
bad when regard is had to
Section 113 (2) of Chapter 11,
as amended by the Criminal
Law (Procedure) (Amend-
ment) Ordinance, 1961 (No.
22) which reads as follows:
'The indictment against the
accused person may include, ei-
ther in substitution for or in:ad-
dition to counts charging the
offence for which he was com-
mitted any counts found on
facts or evidence disclosed in
any 'bamination or deposition
:taken before a magistrate in his
presence being counts which
may lawfully be joined in the
same indictment.'"
According to Justice
Persaud: "Counsel for the State
conceded that if the indictment
was bad, the trial was a nullity;
and he accepts that notwith-
standing the accused pleaded
guilty to manslaughter, the sub-
sequent conviction and sentence
would, in the circumstances, be'
Speaking at this juncture on
behalf of himself and his two
colleagues, he went on to say:
"In our view, this case is
not to be equated with the case
of R. v. Thomas, (1948) 32 Cr.
App. R. 50, where all that was
necessary was the formal pro-

duction of the relevant Statu-
tory Rule and Order, in order to
complete the case against the
appellant, as, apart from such
Statutory Rule and Order, the
offence had been sufficiently
disclosed on the face of the
"The question before us is
- as it was in the case of R. v.
Chairman, London Quarter Ses-
sions, Ex parte Downes, (1953)
2 All E. R. 750 whether the
depositions or examination
taken before the magistrate in
the presence of the accused dis-
closed the offence of murder.
"This is to say, whether it
has been disclosed from the evi-
dence that the deceased died
from the wound or wounds in-
flicted upon him by the appel-
"In our yiew, the evidence
on the depositions does not
disclose from what cause the
decease died. In all probabil-
ity, he did die from a wound
he received, but in a criminal
trial, probability is not, in
our view, the same as a prima
facie case.":
He said in conclusion that
"because of the factual aspects
of the case, we.must, with
some regret, accede to the sub-
mission made by counsel for the
appellant, and hold that the in-
dictment was bad, which fact
rendered all subsequent pro-
ceedings null and void, [and that
as such] the appeal is, therefore,
allowed and the conviction and
sentence set aside."
Both Justices Cummings
and Crane concurred with the
Justice Crane, who later be-
came Chancellor of the Judi-
ciary, said in his judgment:

"In his memorandum of
reasons, the learned trial judge
concisely catalogued the facts
disclosed in the depositions and
ruled it was quite proper for the
Director [of Public Prosecu-
tions], on those facts, to substi-
tute a count for murder in the
place of felonious wounding, the
offence for which.the examining
magistrate committed. :. j
Noting that Senior; S ate
Counsel had referenced the
main points in the factual
evidence, namely, that of!the
deponent Ramratie, who isaw
the accused with a knife; that
of the deponent Rajdai, who
saw him throw the khife
away after he had
disembowelled the deceased
with it; and, above all, to Dr
Cardeno Isidio's examina-
tion of the deceased an1 the
multiple stab wounds he' con-
sidered 'dangerous to life',
Justice Crane said:
"In my view, while all these
facts may well support a count
for felonious wounding, they
are incapable of supporting one
for murder in the absence of any
evidence of the cause of Pleath
of the deceased in the circum-
stances of this case. Evidence of
the cause of death is vital. It
cannot be overlooked. It' is an
essential ingredient in the proof
of the offence of mucder.In
bringing home a case of itiurder,
hom, the deceased died has got
to beproved. It has also to be
proved by either direc' or cir-
cumsthntial evidence thpt it \% as
the accused who brought about
his death."
So saying, he agreed 'that
the appeal be allowed and the
conviction and sentence be

anger, hate, and disappoint-
I wish nothing but ill for
him and his tramps. I don't
know what to do. Has he ever
loved me? In less than a year
our bills will be paid. I don't

his women do. 'ou don't know
what he said to encourage. hold.
and maintain a relationship with
them. If his family had ap-
proved. he may have married
He should feel ashamed for
continuing a relationship with a
woman hie was not willing to

lack of character. That same lack
of character allowed him to
marry you and continue other
relationships. No surprise that
there is yet another woman

You cannot defend your

marriage against every other

way you can defend your mar-
riage is by dealing with the man

is it to confront him, than to
confront all the other women he
might come into contact with?
It's him, not other women,
you have issues with. If he can
cheat on you. while you are at-

believe he would stay with you

Just because one person,

Passage Two
Tracking the "Killer Waves"
The quake struck almost on the stroke of noon, and
by 12:13 Japan's meteorological agency had issued
an 0-tsunami (big Tsunami) alarm to eight coastal
prefectures. But in then critically endangered Akita
prefecture, the local head of disaster prevention
relayed the warning only to fire stations, inexplica-
bly forgetting to trigger an alarm network that cov-
ered 69 towns and villages. Had that warning gone
out, it would have been broadcast over public loud-
speakers, and many lives might have been saved.
Respond to the following questions:
1. When did the quake strike?
2. How long did it take to warn the eight coastal
3. What is the word given for "big Tsunami"?
4. What was the serious omission committed by

Someone had "borrowed Sylvie's .Dalmatian,
Ralph, without her permission and taken the dog to
the country fair. The dog, which had been tied up
outside in the pleasant weather, had been taken and
returned without anyone's noticing. Instead of go-
ing to the fair as she had originally planned, Sylvie
had been at the library most of the day studying for
a difficult test. When she got home, Sylvie got a
call from a friend who had happened to see Ralph
at the fair.
"Hey, I saw Ralph with the blue ribbon nice going.
How come you let that crazy redhead take him,
though? The girl had asked.
"Blue ribbon! Crazy redhead? Ralph at the fair!
What are you talking about?" Sylvie had exclaimed.
"You mean uh oh! Listen, Sylvie, I'm not a snitch.
I have to go now. Bye!" and she hung up abruptly.
Sure enough, Ralph had a blue ribbon pinned to his
collar. Who was the mischief maker?
Sylvie thought of the three redheads she knew.
Terry loved animals, especially Ralph, but she was
supposed to be at camp. Engle was mischievous
and loved to play jokes, but he was a little uneasy
around dogs. Finally, Sylvie's younger brother
Rannie had red hair, too. But he owed her a favour,
not a trick!
What is the best conclusion? Choose.
Terry came back from camp and
took Ralph to the fair.
Engle decided to overcome his ner-
vousness around dogs and took Ralph in order to
play a trick on Syivie.
Rannie took Ralph. He thought of it as
a favour, not a trick especially when the dog won
the blue ribbon.

What clues did you use to come to your decision?

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to our Mathematics columns. Al-
ways try to use whatever you have learnt or
else you will quickly lose your capacity to
remember it. Then there are times when
things get so bad that you do not even re-
member any thing at all that you learned by
the end of the day. Just be conscious that
this happens when you try to learn too much
at one sitting. Love you.

Reminder: Area is always square measure.
1. The area of the bottom of the box was 45 m X
45 m, which is 2025 m2.
2. The area of any side of the box was 35 cm X
35 cm, which is 12225 cm2.
3. The area of the tall side of the box was 12 cm
X 26 cm, which is 312 cm2.

Read the next solution carefully now.

4. If the volume of the box was 31,500 m3, and
the bottom of the box measured 30 m X 30 m,
then the height of the box was 31,500 30 X 30,
which is 35 m.


This week we will take time to let you look very,
very closely to the decimal.
You do know that 3/10 is a fraction. We have
done a lot in fractions already. You can use a
decimal to name a fraction too.
If you divide a plot of land into ten equal parts,
one of those parts is called one tenth. The whole
plot is equal to ten tenths.
If you take into consideration three of those ten
tenths, you will have to write what you have taken
as 0.3. .
It means that you have not taken a whole field.
You have just taken three tenths, written as 0.3.

Look at what comes next.

3.7 = 3 and 7 tenths.
5.2 = 5 and 2 tenths
7.6 = 7 and 6 tenths

Write as decimal. The first one is done for you.
1.6/10 =0.6
2. 4/10 =
3. 8/10 =
4. 2 3/10 =
5. 5 7/10 =

7. 5 tenths
8. 2 and 6 tenths
9. 16 and 4 tenths
10.4 and 7 tenths
11. five tenths
12. 1 tenth

You can use a decimal when a whole is divided
into hundredths.
When a whole is divided into one hundred equal
parts, one part is called one hundredths and the
whole is called 100 hundredths.

If you see a decimal written as 0.05, you should
read it off as five hundredths.
1.17 can be read off as one and seventeen hun-

Complete the sets:
1.2.65 = 2 and ... .hundredths
2.11.02 = ....And .... Hundredths

9. 3 and 26 hundredths
10.8 and 53 hundredths
11.4 tens, 5 tenths, 1 hundredths
12. 2 ones, 8 hundredths, 3 tenths
13. 9 tens, 6 hundredths, 1 tenth

Weather Records
Write the underlined words as a decimal.

14. The largest raindrop ever recorded weighed
fifty and sixty-seven hundredths grams.

15. The greatest rainfall in one day was seventy
three and sixty-two hundredths inches.

6. 0.764
8. 0.0009

Reminder: You know that decimals are frac-
tions with denominators 10, 100, 1000, etc.
Using this fact we can always convert a decimal
to a vulgar fraction.

Example I

Convert 0.32 to a fraction.

0.32 = 32/100 = 8/25 (reduced to its lowest

We need to note something very important here,
when we are comparing decimals and fractions.
When we are doing that it is best to convert the
fraction into a decimal, than to convert the deci-
mal into the fraction.


Convert 0.2 to a vulgar fraction in its lowest terms.

0.2 = 2/10 = 1/5

Example 3

Convert 0.45 to a vulgar fraction in its lowest

0.45 = 45/100 = 9/20


Convert the following to fractions in their lowest
Do not forget that you must deal only with the
decimal part. In other words, let the whole num-
ber alone.

their architectural high point

of a typical colonial Christian

that are not from Christian

Albouystown Hindu Temple,
built in 1922, which is seen by
Singh as a culmination of the
early 20t' Century tendency to
build temples with a Chrisuan
church form. Singh calls this a
"Chrisro-creole style temple"

IN AN earlier article in this

Bahadur Singh (Temples and
Mosques: An Illustrated Study
of East Indian Places of Worship
in Guyana) that the first
temples and mosques in the
then British Guiana, "... ex-
hibit the solidity and perma-
nence of a period of consoli-

that retains the circular form
of the Shivala he calls "Indo-
creole". This nomenclature
still needs some testing and

A timber building, the
Albouystown Hindu Temple
exhibits architectural ele-
ments of the colonial style
architecture of the period in-
cluding, highly ornate deco-
rations and fretwork,
pointed-arch windows and a
balustraded, covered entrance
porch. The non-Christian el-
ement is the sikhara (or
tower) projecting out of the
roof, close to the main en-
trance. Also, whereas the ear-
lier Shivalas had no congre-
gation space, the early 20th
Century temple .created a
congregation space, similar to
Christian churches.
In the case of the
Albouystown temple, this
space is linear, whilst in the
Providence case, it is cen-
trally planned, with the
sikhara rising directly over
the centre.
According to Singh:
"All in all, the architectural
and ornamental elements of the
creole temple are not without
definite creative impulse in de-
sign and decoration. The total
effect in the 'Christo-creole'
models, as at Albouystown,
tends to be. austere, formal and
restrained. \while the 'Indo-cre-
ole' model!. as at Pro\idence. are
not without the exuberance as-
sociated \ ith Onentalism.'"

place of worship from a basic
shrine with a small cella to a

tional architectural forms,
they exhibit the impulse to

choreographed by Verna
Walcott-White, the group
treated the audience to a
sample of the social dances
associated with Guyana's
multicultural society.
One of the highlights of the
dance programme was a cameo
performance by dance doyenne,
Ms Doris Harper-Wills. She ap-
peared as guest performer and
choreographer in an item titled,
'Old Time Stories'. She also nar-
rated the crowd-pleasing 'Pag-
eant of the People'. Ms. Harper-
Wills was one of the 39
Guyanese honoured at the GFF
2005 Awards.
Also featured on the
programme were dances by New
Revelations Dance Group, under
the tutelage of Sandra Primus,
and Impressions Dance Theatre
with choreography by Verna
Walcott-White. Both Primus and
Walcott-White are past pupils of
the National School of Dance
and former members the Na-
tional Dance Company.
Ms Vivienne Daniels,
Director of the National
School of Dance and the
National Dance Company,
herself a past pupil and
member of the former and
latter institutions respec-
tively, choreographed an
.item presented by current
members of the Company
who had travelled from
Guyana for the occasion.
All of the dances on the pro-
gram showcased the versatility
and scope of Guyana's interpre-
tative and theatrical dance. Those
of the choreographers who now
reside in the US were all proud
to pay homage to their linkages
to Guyana.
According to Dr Cambridge,
GFF 2005 sought to produce an
event "that would contribute to
an appreciation of the history
and direction of Guyanese ex-
pressive culture, especially dance
and its allied forms."
He indicated that the
Festival's organizers have al-
ready begun to work on plans
for GFF 2006, which will coin-
cide with the 401h Anniversary of
Guyana's Independence. Next
year's theme, he said, will be
'CARIFESTA '72 Revisited'.
The programme of activities will
commence on May 26, and end
on September 3, 2006.
Among those from
Guyana who were present at
this year's Festival were
Guyana's Public Service Min-
ister, Dr Jennifer Westford,
Pro-Chancellor of the Univer-
sity of Guyana, Dr Prem
Misir, and Information Liai-
son to the President, Mr Rob-

Photos and story by Sandra

IT WAS sweet nostalgia for
more than two hundred
Guyanese as they journeyed
back in time last Friday to be
totally immersed in one of
Guyana's most enduring and
undiluted cultural traditions -
,the 'queh-queh' ceremony.
The venue was the Court-
yard Club on Atlantic Avenue in
Brooklyn, New York and the
event unquestionably one of the
highlights of the annual Guyana
Folk Festival celebrations.
Patrons began arriving rela-
tively earl, for th-e, e.Eing'sen-
tertainment, and soon it was
standing room dnly in the
packed club. Grandparents, par-
ents and young adults yielded to
the sway of the drums and
chants, and were persuaded to
take their turn on the floor. dem-
onstrating or being taught the ba-
sic 'stomp, stomp, aick', essen-
tial for mastery of this dance
Many in the audience were
heartened to see such an impor-
tant Guyanese cultural tradition
surviving and thriving in
America. Some commented that
'queh-queh' seems to be more
popular in North America than
it is at home in Guyana, because
it is hardly ever seen at weddings

group, the Queh Queh Jammers;

fiom the queh-queh', cumnfa', and
'masquerade- traditions.
Public Service Minister, Dr
Jennifer Westford, who was
present at the event, could not
resist the call of the drums.
Soon, she too was caught up in
the singing, shuffling, swaying,
dancing throng, as the compelling
rh thibms of Akoyah and the
Queb Queh Jammers wrought
their magic.
'Queh-queh' is an Afro-
Guyanese dance tradition, per-
fond on the eveningbefore a wed-

nities as 'mayan', and in others,

CRIPPLED BY polio from early childhood,
Rajkumari Singh beat overwhelming odds,
leaving behind a significant legacy of a life
well lived functioning as a captain in the Guyana
National Service, a para-military organisation;
establishing herself as the first recognized East
Indian woman writer in Guyana, pioneering and
enhancing the slighted 'coolie art forms'; raising
eight children of her own; and becoming the
surrogate cultural and artistic mother to younger
writers and artists.
Poetess, playwright,, broadcaster, feminist, political activist,
Rajkumarie Singh was born on October 13, 1923, in Lamaha Street,


Georgetown, to eminent social reformer, Dr. Jung Bahadur Singh,
and cultural activist Alice Bhagwandai Singh. Her father founded
the Maha Sabha and was president to the British Guiana East In-
dian Association for a number of years, while her mother founded
the British Guiana Dramatic Society and the Balak Sahaita
Mandalee, a child welfare organisation. The Singh clan is a literary
and culturally gifted family running into a third generation of play-
wrights, poets and performing artistes.
As early as the 1940s, while still a teenager, Rajkumari Singh
was making her mark on society as a member of the British Guiana


Dramatic Society, promoting the right and duty of the East Indian
to maintain their cultural identity. In her poem 'Per-Ajie', she paid
what Jeremy Poynting described as "special homage to the stead-
fastness of Indian women, whose virtues she saw as central to the
character of the Indo-Guyanese as a people."
I can see/How in stature/Thou didst grow/Shoulders up/Head
held high/The challenge/In thine eye

tached to the People's Progressive Party (PPP) during thel960s,
she was made a member of .the commission that investigated the

racial savagery and sexual brutality meted out to East Indian fe-
males during the civil disturbance at Wismar in 1964. This led her
to posit that there must be better understanding and greater toler-
ance between-Blacks and Indians. So she joined the Guyana Na-
tional Service in a much publicised split from the PPP, believing
that Indians must be part of the mainstream or become voiceless.
While she was part.of the Cultural Division of the Guyana Na-
tional Service, there was "a brief period of visibility of Indian art,
ists and writers, which stimulated a small explosion of Indo-
Guyanese writing." This led to the formation of the Messenger
Group that put on several public show s and produced the journal
'Heritage' in order to draw public attention to the 'collie an Forms'.
,And, she was successful, according to, Vibert Cambridge, in.

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll be looking plants (How Plants G et
Oxygen) then we'll have a look at last week's

in (in haled) by tiny holes in the leaf of the plants
called stomata. The in take of oxygen, carbon
dioxide and water vapour is let out thought the
stomata of the plant. The process of respiration
in plants goes on all the time.

the water at a bolingpoin't.

4. Half fill the test tube with alcohol and place it
in the container containing boiled water.
Place the leaf in the test tube with the alco--

5. Take the leaf out and wash it in cold water
then place a drop of iodine solution onto it.

It is the opposite of photosynthesis.

6. Now what do you observe

How Plants G et Oxygen

We spoke about respiration in an earlier lesson,
which explained how the human body respires
and we also know during respiration the chemi-
cal energy stored in foods (mainly carbohy-
drates) is released. Oxygen from the air is taken

The respiration formula of the plant can be writ-
ten as follows:

Oxygen + sugar -o water vapour +
carbon dioxide + energy

An experiment that can be conducted

Here is a list of things you will need during the
experiment, are as follows:-

green leaves
heat source

* iodine
* test tube
* alcohol

1. Pick the leaves from a plant or plants which
have been out in the sunlight for a few hours.

2. Put one of the leaves into boiled water

3. Pour some water into a container and heat

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this Social Studies input. If you
find that in a study group it is difficult to recall
most of what you were trying to learn like the
others, do not despair. Some of us have bet-
ter memories than others. Try to practise
memorizing beloved poems and bits of inter-
esting information to help improve your memory
capacity if you feel your memory-function is
tardy. Be careful, now! Love you.



The Environment (Continued)
> Environment is whatever surrounds us wher-
ever we find ourselves at any time.
> Our physical environment can be made up of
man-made structures, plants, tiny creatures in the
soil and air, pests and diseases that bother crops,
and you can add a lot more features for yourself.
> Nature plays its part in our physical environ-
ment. Look at the rain and sun; the living things in
the river, and forest, and mudflat.
> The social environment is made up of objects
that we cannot touch or hold such as family tradi-
tions and values, the way people communicate, and
the rules and customs agreed upon.


Animals (continued)
Some points about animals:
/ ''bioo.,(tgrs, and.Otters are hunters so they

have strong jaws and teeth. All animals that live by
hunting have canine teeth. When last have you vis-
ited the Zoological Park?

V Rodents include rats, mice, rabbits, hares,
squirrels, beavers, hamsters, porcupines. They live
on roots, nuts, and some of them insects. These
have long, sharp, and chisel-like teeth for cracking
and gnawing. Have you looked at a rat eating lately?

/ Rabbits and hares have large, round eyes at
the top of their heads, and very sensitive ears be-
cause they are hunted by other animals. Have you
seen any rabbit on television lately?
v The dog is another animal that has very keen
hearing. The dog hears sounds that are too shrill
for human beings to hear. Have you ever watched
a dog following a scent? Well, start observing how
the dog uses scent-memory. What can happen to
you if you meet face-to-face with a dog you have
hurt some time ago? Look at a picture of a dog

/ Animals with hooves, the ungulates, live on
grass, leaves and a vegetable diet. They do not
need sharp flesh-tearing teeth, or long sharp frcnt

teeth. They do have fairly sharp front teeth though,
and flat chewing teeth at the back. They also have
a strong tongue to help them eat grass. These
animals are mammals known as ruminants. Their
stomach is divided into
four separate parts. The
group includes ox and
cow; and the goat, sheep
and deer. Look at the
cows feeding and digest-
ing below. Note the skull
of the ungulate.
If you should go into our
S :' rainforest areas, you
S" maybe will be able to see
... how animals really exist.
Some are night animals
and others are day
animals. Animals
like the tiger can see
when there is a little
light, so they can
hunt and feed by
night. They how-
ever, cannot feed in
the absolute dark.

The flying mam-
mals, the bats, have
webbed wings quite
different from birds'
wings. They can fly
in a pitch dark envi-
ronment. They
sleep hanging up-
side-down with their
webbed wings
wrapped around
their bodies.

The result of this experiment is:

The leaf becomes blue-black. This is because
starch is present in the leaf.

The Passage
Reaching the town, Troy descended into a side street
and entered a pair of gates surmounted by a board
bearing the words, "Lester, stone and marble ma-
son". Within were lying about stones of all sizes
and designs, inscribed as being sacred to the
memory of unnamed persons who had notyet died.
Troy was so unlike himself now in look, word, and
deed, that the want of likeness was perceptible even
to his own consciousness. His method of engag-
ing himself in this business of purchasing a tomb
was that of an absolutely unpracticed man. He could
not bring himself to consider, calculate, or econo-
mize. He.waywardly wished for something, and he
set about obtaining it like a child in a nursery. "I
want a good tomb," he said to the man who stood
in a little office within the yard. "I want as good a
one as you can give me for twenty-seven pounds."
It was all the money he possessed.
"That sum to include everything?"
"Everything. Cutting the name, carriage to
Weatherbury, and erection. And I want it now, at
"We could not get anything special worked this
"I must have it now."
"If you would like one of these in stock it could be
made ready immediately."
"Very well," said Troy, impatiently. "Let's see what
you have."
"The best I have is this one," said the stonecutter,
going into a shed. "Here's a marble headstone
beautifully crocketed, with medallions beneath the
typical subjects; here's the footstone after the same
pattern, and here's the coping to enclose the grave.
The polishing alone of the set cost me eleven
pounds the slabs are the best of their kind, and I
can warrant them to resist rain and frost for a hun-
dred years without flying.
"And for how much?"
"Well, I add the name, and put it up at Weatherbury
for the sum you mention."
"Get it done today, and I'll pay you the money now."
The man agreed, and wondered at such a mood in
a visitor who wore not a shred of mourning....

He was sitting at the table writing. His legs were
stretched out before him. In the kitchen, Mary was

Analogy and Contrast
Here is an exercise that will help you understand
comparisons made in the text. To do this success-
fully, you need to be able to understand relations
between parts of a text.

Read the following text and complete the table given
Imagine a piece of land thirty kilometers long and
thirty kilometers wide. Picture it wild, inhabited by
animals small and large. Now visualize a compact
group of sixty human beings camping in the middle
of this territory. Try to see yourself sitting there, as
a member of this tiny tribe, with the landscape, your
landscape, spreading out around you farther than
you can see. No one apart from your tribe uses
this vast space. It is your exclusive home-range,
your tribal hunting ground. Every so often the men
in your group set off in pursuit Of prey. The women
gather fruits and berries. The children play noisily
around the camp site, imitating the hunting tech-
niques of their fathers. If the! tribe is successful
and swells in size, a splinter group will set off to
colonise a new territory. Little by little the species
will spread.

Imagine a piece of land thirty kilometers long and
thirty kilometers wide. Picture it civilized, inhabited
by machines and buildings. Now visualize a com-
pact group of six million human beings camping in
the middle of this territory. See yourself sitting there,
with-the company of the huge city spreading out all
around you, farther than you can: see.

Now compare these two pictures. In the second
scene there are a hundred thousand individuals for
every one in the first scene. The space has re-
mained the same. Speaking in evolutionary terms,
this, dramatic change has been almost instanta-
neous; it has taken a mere few thousand years to
convert scene one into scene two.

relationships within a passage. It will help you un-
derstand relations between parts of a text. ;

Can you re-order the following sentences sc9 'as to
form a coherent paragraph?

a) We should not dismiss Malthus too quickly; how-

The Dentist Advises



ONE CANNOT deny that most people know that smoking
is dangerous to health. But the nature of tobacco smoke
as well as the relationship between oral hygiene and the
magnitude of the addiction are by no means common
Cigarette smoke consists of more than 4,700 compounds,
43 of which cause cancer. Nicotine, a dangerous alkaloid, is con-
sidered the addicting agent that makes quitting smoking so dif-
ficult. Local hospital records show that nearly all lung cancer
deaths are caused by cigarette smoking. It is the leading fatal
cancer in the world today. In addition, smoking is held respon-
sible for many deaths and much disability from various illnesses,
such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema (lung tissue destruction)
and heart disease.
Nicotine is an extremely poisonous, colorless, oily liquid
that turns brown on exposure to air. The most potent ingredi-
ent of the tobacco plant, it can affect the human nervous sys-
tem, causing respiratory failure and general paralysis. It can be
absorbed through the skin.
Only two or three drops (less than 50 milligrams) of the.
pure alkaloid placed on the tongue are sufficient to quickly kill
an adult. A typical cigarette contains 15 to 20 milligrams of nico-
tine. However, the actual amount that


. .

reaches the bloodstream and, hence, the brain through normal
smoking, is only about one milligram. Nicotine is believed to be
responsible for most of the short term, and many of the long
term, effects of smoking. The nicotine derived from tobacco
scraps of many cigarette factories is used as a pesticide. An
adolescent might develop a positive attitude toward cigarette
smoking because peers praise the experience; because the expe-
rience gives a temporary pleasure; and because the adolescent
wants to appear mature and develops the attitude that smoking
is an adult activity.
Women who smoke during pregnancy may give birth to a
baby who is abnormally small and underdeveloped, because of
the increased carbon monoxide and decreased oxygen in the
No habitual smoker can ever have a healthy mouth. It is
virtually impossible to attain and maintain oral health and hy-
giene while at the same time smoking forms a part of life's rou-
tines. The principal reason is because the tobacco smoke is in-
compatible with the periodontal (gum) health. The cells in the
tissues that surround the teeth are poisoned by nicotine. The
result is chronic gum disease which eventually leads to the loss
of the teeth involved. These patients often wonder how come
they brush and floss as they should and yet gum disease and
bad breath persist. Incidentally, much of smokers' bad breath
does not originate from tobacco itself, but from the concomi-
tant gum disease.
In an investigation conducted in Norway among sol-
diers, it was proven that the Oral Hygiene Index values
rose in direct proportion to the amount of cigarettes
smoked on a daily basis. The deleterious effect of smok-
ing also increases with age.
Finally, the nicotine deposited on the enamel (the sur-
face of the tooth) eventually penetrates to the dentine. One
must remember that no human tissue is physically with-
out micro-pores, which communicate with the environ-
ment. So, when the tooth structure is permeated, adequate
removal of the stains through polishing obviously beconles
impossible:, - - --. .--. .- -_ -.,.-- ... .

Why antibiotics may not THE VET

be effective continued

L AST WEEK, it was
pointed out that this
misdiagnosis of the
ailment, an inappropriate
selection of antibiotics
specifically related to the
sickness, inadequate wound
care, and the route (orally,
by injection, etc) of
administering the antibiotic
could all contribute to the
ineffectiveness of the chosen
Today, we will continue
with this theme.

The form in which the anti-
biotic is presented has a lot to
do with its effectivity. The an-
tibiotic can be in the form of
drops (especially favoured in
eye and ear ailments), as well as
in the form of capsules, tablets,

suspensions, suppositories,
creams, ointments, drips, etc.
There is a reason why the
vet will prescribe an antibiotic
capsule instead of a tablet. The
absorption of the antibiotic
within the tablet begins as soon
as it hits the stomach. Some an-
tibiotics are rough on the stom-
ach wall, so the vet might pre-
scribe the antibiotic in the form
of a capsule, so that by the time
the gelatin (or other) covering is
dissolved, the antibiotic inside
would have already moved to
the intestine where it will be ab-
By the same token, if the
vet tells you to take the capsule
orally for a wound infection, do
not open the capsule and strew
the contents on the wound sur-
face. I guarantee that you will
not get the desired response.
Scientists have actually carried
out this research and found that
the sprinkling of the capsule's

contents on the open wound
does not yield the desired re-
Similarly, there are reasons
(which we will not address
here) as to why the animal doc-
tor prescribes an antibiotic oint-
ment instead of an antibiotic
cream, or an antibiotic suspen-
sion instead of an injection. You,
the -owner of the pet, know
fully well how unruly some of
your wards can be. For example,
some pets will not allow you to
place a tablet at the back of their
mouths, but those same pets
would have no difficulty in swal-
lowing a honey-flavoured sus-
pension containing the same an-

The total dose is computed
by knowing the dog's weight,

then dividing the total daily
dose into equal parts and giving
each part at spaced-out inter-
vals, so as to keep a specific
le\el of the anubiotic circulating
in the animal's s)stiem.
By the way, I should men-
tion that the recommendation to
give one capsule every eight
hours is not the same as giving
that capsule three times daily,
simply because three times
daily could be at 8:00 am (be-
fore you go to work), 12:00
noon (at lunch) and 4:00 pm
(when you return from work).
If you administered the antibi-
otic at that frequency, then there
is a long period to be catered for
between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pmi
the next day a period of
Always keep in mind that
when the total antibiotic
dosage level is too low, or not
given often enough, the.
result is not only less than
favourable, but can actually
be counterproductive.

Welcome to the 364h edition of
"Champion Cookery Corner", a
weekly feature giving recipes and
tips on cooking in Guyana.

Scones are believed to have originated in Scotland and are closely related to the griddle baked flatbread,
known as bannock. They werefirst made with oats, shaped into a large round, scored intofour to six triangles,
and cooked on a griddle either over an open fire or on top of the sto ve. Along the way someone decided to cut
the round into individual triangles and bake them that way. That was the start of the scone we know today:
Here are twb recipes for you to try and enjoy!
